Reading Our Way to Wellness

As a school, we emphasise the need for academic and emotional balance so that students and teachers can better manage commitments inside and outside school. ‘Wellness Week’ at YCIS Shanghai is one of the ways to prioritise wellbeing and wellness within our community. We encourage all students—from K2–Year 13—to engage in mindful, calm activities and to foster a balanced lifestyle comprised of hard work and intentional leisure. The habit of reading also has proven long-lasting benefits for children. We recognise this through our annual 'Book Week' with activities to encourage the love of books and reading.
